On 21 September 2014 at the Cinec convention in Munich, ARRI announced the ALEXA 65, a 6K 65mm digital cinema camera. The camera features a sensor that is slightly larger than a 65mm 5-perf film frame and is comprised of three ALEXA sensors that are arranged vertically and seamlessly stitched together.
The ALEXA 65 has subsequently become the go-to large-format solution for high-end theatrical motion pictures. ARRI initially only built 30 cameras and due to the increased interest and high demand, they built another 40 cameras. This brings the total up to 70 units worldwide. The cameras are only available through ARRI Rental.
The ALEXA 65 has become so sought after that there is a long waiting list for anyone who wants to use one. The camera has been used on films such as The Revenant, Wonder Woman, Mission Impossible – Rogue Nation, Transformers – The Last Knight, Okja, Rogue One, The Dark Tower, War For The Planet Of The Apes, Life, and Thor – Ragnarok just to name a few.
